We’ve joined forces with Anglia Ruskin University and Change Agents UK to launch a new Masters course that will provide graduates with the knowledge and skills to act as catalysts for sustainability.
Entitled ‘MSc Sustainability: Working for Positive Change’, the Masters course is accredited by Anglia Ruskin University, with several modules being taught here at the Eden Project.
The course incorporates a number of residential weeklong workshops – both here and at Anglia Ruskin’s Global Sustainability Institute, in Cambridge – an online learning component, and a work placement giving students the chance to apply their skills in a real-life setting.
Anglia Ruskin is providing the academic content of the course and, through its Global Sustainability Institute, access to state-of-the-art research and expertise. Students will contribute to a wide range of research projects being undertaken including the impact of resource constraints, the communication of climate science, and issues surrounding climate finance.
Here at Eden graduates will be able to experience at first hand a living example of a social enterprise, focussing on themes such as governance and behavioural change, community engagement, and good business practice.
Dr Tony Kendle, our Creative Director says: ‘The qualification will cover a wide range of subjects that will become increasingly important as we continue to adapt to our changing world. We hope that students will be inspired by the course and that they will use this inspiration to create the transformational projects of the future.’
The MSc in Sustainability, which begins in September, is open to students from any discipline wanting to become sustainability professionals or to influence change within their existing profession. Students can study full-time (one year) or part-time (two years) from anywhere in the country.
